Maximum depth from Ref. 81749. Found on bushes of black coral Antipathella wollastoni (Ref. 2767). Known as a fouling species (Ref. 81749). Members of the superorder Thoracica are mostly hermaphroditic. Broadcast spawners, fertilization occurs in the mantle cavity. Life cycle: Eggs hatch into planktonic nauplii and leave the mantle cavity. Afterwards, they undergo six naupliar instars succeded by nonfeeding cypris larva (settling stage) which later metamorphose into adults (Ref. 833).
